The Mary Massacre

Is it me, or does Mary J. Blige have the tendency to mess up a good song. I was listening to Musiq Soulchild's "If you Leave" featuring Mary and couldn't help but think how much better the song would've been without Mary, or with someone else.

This isn't the first occurence of the "Mary Massacre." Let me take you back to Neyo's "Do You" featuring the Diva.

Its not that I don't like Mary, I love her. But I think she does better on her own, or singing the hook on a rap song. She has a very strong voice, but it takes away from calm, relaxing melodies.
